- Unlike, for example, a lamb chop, burgers made with shop-bought mince should be cooked all the way through (i.e. not pink in the middle). This is because ground/minced lamb has a larger surface area for bacteria to grow on and can therefore survive in the middle of the burger, whereas the inside of a chop has not been exposed and only the outside (which gets cooked) can come into contact with bacteria. However, if you mince your own lamb and use it straight away, it can be cooked so that it is slightly pink in the middle.
